“The nicest employee ever!!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The room didn't look brand new of course but it was very clean. We had our own balcony, a kitchen, a full size refrigerator, none of those little things. The employee was great. The ocean beach was just down a few steps so no need to drive your car on the beach. Perfect location. We will definitely go back to stay there again and in fact, I'm planning it now!

This was our first trip to Port Aransas. Staff very friendly, room very nice and clean. Didn't sleep much because the AC and fridge were very loud and the there was no way to block the morning sun. Still, we plan to come back and definitely recommend.

This place was great. We had our 17yr old son, 14 yr old daughter and 3 yr old Daughter. It's right on the beach, great swimming pool ( could've had a little more shade though). Check in was 4pm but we arrived at 12:00 and they didn't have the room ready until about 3:00 so do not come early during peak season. We stayed in room 510...perfect view of the beach and swimming pool with a balcony at the back of our room and one off the master. We will stay here again!

Room Tip: Room 510, best view

Nice, quaint place with a boardwalk to the beach. The hill is steep, so you may want to pay the $12/yr to park on beach. The pool looked nice, but I didn't go in.
We got early check in at 1230! Staff was very nice.
My only complaint is that the walls are very thin. We were on the top floor(2) and could hear a very hyperactive kid running back and forth for hours. At 0100 we were woken by voices outside. So bring ear plugs!

We just stayed in room 506(2 bedroom) which was so very cute. It was decorated with a San Antonio Fiesta theme with tons of artsy, colorful decor for a very happy, kid friendly feel. They told us it was the most kid friendly condo available to us at the time. We are very happy with the spaciousness and the quality of the rooms. It was very clean and renovated. The only con would be that the windows (which had pretty good views of the ocean/not completely unobstructed but still good) were needing to be replaced as they were very foggy from the humidity and salt. I tried to clean them but they weren't cleanable. The bedroom window shutters need some attention too-I couldn't close one of them to block out all the light at night. Otherwise, we really enjoyed the pool, the close walk to the beach, the full kitchen, decor, clean daily towels, cold a/c, etc. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: You might want to bring a household cleanser if you like to clean up-while towels are exchanged dail...

We just got home from Port A and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My husband and I wanted to stay on the beach with our two dogs; nothing fancy. We had an efficiency which was a large room with queen bed, futon, dinette, small kitchen, fridge, microwave, tv, ample closet space, shower/tub, and separate sink area. We were on the ground floor with a back patio area that opened up to a huge, well maintained lawn; perfect for frisbee with the dogs while having a glass of wine. The grounds were well taken care of with a nice pool, interesting plants, and good space between buildings. They have a boardwalk that leads you through the dunes to the beach. The location is perfect . . at the end of the main beach area and then it opens up to the drive/park area of the beach.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all . . . it was an older condo that was clean and perfect for us.

Room Tip: Every room has a different owner so they have different interiors. Our room had an extremely hard b...

Reviewed 23 October 2012

We spent one night in Port Aransas and enjoyed our stay at Executive Keys. We rented an efficiency condo and it was larger and nicer than we expected. Each condo is privately owned so the decor and set up varies. The condos were built in the 70's, so the room is pretty large; just don't expect a super fancy place. There are larger condos (with more bedrooms), but the small one suited us well. My parents traveled with us and also enjoyed their condo. I was surprised that the condo did not have a blow dryer and did not offer shampoo or hand lotion.

There was a journal in our condo with a note from the owners explaining their history with EK and suggested we write down our thoughts, which I did. This small detail made us feel even more comfortable and welcome (Thanks Mary Jo and Tom!)

Many of the other condos we looked at had a minimum stay of two nights, so it was great that EK did not require a 2-night stay. The office staff was very nice and gave us ideas where to eat and have fun. There is a boardwalk to the beach and a pool.

There are no restaurants in the immediate vicinity, so you will need to drive to a restaurant. Another option is to take some groceries and cook in your fully stocked kitchen or barbeque out on the grill.

Our condo was nicely decorated and very clean. The grounds are well manicured and have many beautiful plants and trees. The area was quite (not sure if that's because it's off-season) and we felt safe. We will definitely plan to stay at Executive Keys on our next trip to Port Aransas.
